StrongFirst Kettlebell Course FAQ

What are the fundamental kettlebell movements?

The Deadlift, Squat, Swing, Turkish Get-up and Military Press are the fundamental kettlebell movements. They are easy to learn yet difficult to master. Once a student can safely do these movements to the StrongFirst Standard, they can train with kettlebells on their own safely and effectively.

Why not more exercises?

We chose the movements that are easiest to teach and offer the highest return on investment. There are other movements in our kettlebell curriculum, but we don’t want to overwhelm our students. Like all of our courses, the kettlebell course is narrow and deep!

Will the course help me prepare for the certification?

Yes, this course will help you prepare for our certification. You will learn movements that will help you on your path to becoming an SFG. But, this course is NOT designed specifically to get someone ready for our certification. It’s designed more for end users…..people who want to use kettlebells on their own to get stronger and more fit. If you are interested in learning more about our certification, click here.

Will I get a manual?

Yes, all students will receive a manual. This valuable material is great to refer to later on as you continue to pursue and refine your own skills thru strength practice.

Will I get a certificate?

No, students do not receive a certification for this course. You do receive a certificate of attendance.

What else will I learn?

Not only will you learn our 5 fundamental movements, but you will also learn: movement fundamentals, kettlebell safety, strength stretching, state of the art breathing techniques for back safety, tension skills for immediate strength gains and kettlebell programming for continuous improvement.
